I do agree about the PITB. There's a spark missing that doesn't propel this one into the realm of greatness that so many other versions have reached. I find the rest of the show to be total ecstasy though, and that makes up for it. There's a vibe to this show that can't be put into words, and it really draws me in. The slower songs are just soooooo sweet. Candyman, Ship of Fools, Row Jimmy, and Baby Blue are some of my favorite versions ever played. They have that vibe, that I wish I could describe. The playing is exquisite. I suppose exquisite is the best word to describe those songs. Equisite: "marked by flawless craftsmanship or by beautiful, ingenious, delicate, or elaborate execution"
